I tried reviewing this recipe after making it a couple weeks ago, not sure what happened to my prior review. Anyway, this recipe is awesome! I had clipped it out of an insert from my local paper too, and had been carrying that clipping around for several years before actually making it for the first time recently. This stuff is so good, that my husband (who I usually have to prod for feedback) told me "you HAVE to add this to the regular rotation" before I even had a chance to ask how much he liked it. My picky 2 year old gobbled it up and asked for seconds too. The only change I made was to reduce the elbow macaroni amount to 1.5 cups and reduce the water amount to 1.5 cups also. Very easy to throw together and yields such tasty results! We'll be making this a lot. Thanks for posting!!!!!
